One thing I loved about this winter was that I stepped out of my comfort zone and wore pastel shades. I used to only wear dark shades for winter, but as the days are already dull it's nice to add a spot of colour.
I went to Finland recently with my love and boy it was cold! There's winter, and then there's Finnish winter. Luckily I packed lots of fluffy sweaters and thermals - I don't know how I would've survived otherwise! I'm hoping to do some more posts of my holiday in future but I might spread them out over the next couple of months.
This was one of my favourite outfits from my holiday, I felt like such an Easter bunny, so fluffy and cuddly! I was inspired by one of my outfits I put together in my One Outfit Five Ways post, but layered it up for the cold weather.
I'm quite sad that I won't be able to wear fluffy sweaters anymore now that it's getting warmer here in the UK, but I'm really keen on adding some more pastels to my spring & summer wardrobe! It'll also allow me to try out different colours for makeup, taking inspiration from Fairy Kei. Fairy Kei and Gyaru is actually a really cute mix. Although I won't go Fairy Kei all the way I just love the way they put their outfits together, so I took a trip to Tumblr and put together a small moodboard:
A perfect example of a gyaru doing this mix is Emika Kanda. She looks adorable!
I just can't wait to try this out! It looks so fun and it'll be nice to bring a bit more colour into my wardrobe and general makeup. I've been sticking to a lot of brown and black shades for my eyeshadow, so it'll be nice to experiment with blues and pinks.
What styles do you like to mix with gyaru? Let me know in the comments below!
Until next Sunday! ♡
